First off, my 10 miler went pretty well on Saturday morning. My ankle was feeling a bit wonky all week so I decided to test out some sample KT Tape. Have any of you used this tape before? It was my first try and to be quite honest, it helped a lot! I was pleasantly surprised. They haven’t sent me any, nor am I doing this as a formal review, but I really like the stuff. I like that they tell you how to use it and that it is stretchy like an ace bandage, but thin enough to fit in your shoe. Plus, you look almost as cool as those US Olympic Volleyball players!

Secondly, Go Gators! Fun times. Too many beers and fried carby goodness.
Thirdly. Hm. Is thirdly a word? Off to google. Please hold.
Ok, apparently it is, but it sounds weird.
Where was I? Oh, in the third place, I received my award from the Halloween Halfathon in the mail. It’s a cute plaque with my name and it says: Best Beauty Costume. Who would have thought I could win a beauty award sweating my a$$ off in a half marathon? I love it.
Lastly, I too went on a trail run today. Unknowingly, the Redhead and I both set out to hit the trails today. According to her posts on a “social networking” site, she loved it. I on the other hand, am still not impressed. I don’t know why I don’t love the trails. I just don’t. There was more sand/dirt on our trail than I imagined and it was a tad harder than expected. I thought the trails were supposed to be easier? All I know is, by mile 3, I was sprinting to finish. I will give the trails another try soon. Maybe it was all the damn beer from last night’s game….
Hope you all had great weekends. I am off to watch Animation Domination! Gotta love some Family Guy!
Isn't Kinesio tape the BEST? Literally a band-aid, I get that, but such a relief when you are injured – something to help!
Congrats on your third place finish!! That is fabulous!
Congrats on the good run and the sweaty beauty award, fabulous!! I have seen that tape everywhere but haven't tried it yet, let us know how you like it!
A sweaty beauty award? That's awesome! I have a sample of the tape but always forget to try it out.
congrats on the award, and I haven't used the KT yet, but my boyfriend had for a hamstring injury. Only part of that I had was ripping it off, there were a lot of bad words and looks my way.
Congrats on the 10! I've used that tape before and I do like it! Best Beauty costume! That one goes on the mantel. That beer will really take a toll on the morning after run. My beer was wine this weekend and whoa did I feel it!
You were def the beauty queen in that halfathon! Congrats on your awesome accomplishment! It's not easy being beautiful AND functional and you managed to pull that off well and impressed all the judges. Awesome job!
I was cracking up when I got back from my run and saw that P-Funk had commented on my status that ya'll were trail running too!!! Great weekend Boo! 🙂
Hope you have a great first FULL week at the new job! Congrats on your award, that's awesome!
I've never tried the tape, but I've always been intrigued by it. And I think those volleyball players look HARDCORE!
Glad to hear the 10-miler went well!
I'm a trail virgin myself. I'm sure I'd wipe out and break my… something.
Fourthly, I have the tape from one of my package pickups and haven't had a need to use it yet. I won a Beauty contest in Monopoly once……..
I like trails but the ones around my house I am too scared to run alone on….
I have been secretly wanting to use kt tape since the olympics last year… My calves/shins are killingggg me from my trail "run" this weekend I think I should find some!
"social network," is that Bookface, or Facebook…I'm confused.
you don't have to love trails, they might not be that into you as well, or maybe they are just playing hard to get.
what until you start to use the word 'fourthly.' it's pretty cool.
I'm not a big "trail runner" either, too dirty, ew. but I'd try it some more… just cause, all the cool kids are doing it. ha!
Glad the new job is going well! 🙂 Is your office like "The Office"? omg mine is. haha
Hope the new job is going well!
Trails are harder to run but easier on your body from the impact side. It takes a little getting used to because you use more stabilizer muscles which make for a great workout. You will be a stronger runner if you can mix it in a couple times a week. I was a dedicated road runner, but now given the choice, I would pick trails everytime.
I'm glad you got a chance to use the tape! I really like it, it's like magic! Congrats on your beauty award! That's pretty cool! I'm really excited for your Ragnar report! I know you'll have a great time and it will become your favorite race! Good luck!
